Center Special Projects Chairman Builds Water Wells in Senegal

Doc Sloan Works Water Resources in Africa

Dr. Sloan started a fresh drinking water campaign in Senegal more than 20 years ago that has led to the location and construction of 158 wells in Africa. Doc worked to elevate the capabilities to include state-of-the-art, real time water quality monitoring with passive filtering techniques that can be utilized without the need for large power requirements, complicated maintenance or technical skills that are frequently not available in locations where the capability is needed most.

Dr. Sloan works with many organizations to help fund these programs. There are numerous studies on the topic, but it is generally accepted worldwide that the provision of clean, fresh drinking water to the general population could have profound and lasting benefits of good health by virtue of the significant reduction in the transmission of infectious disease.
